George W. Bush to publish memoir on "defining decisions"
A memoir by George W. Bush is due out on November 9, announced Crown Publishers on April 26. In
Decision Points, President Bush will talk about the 14 most critical and historic decisions in his life and his service as the 43rd US President, according to the press release.
Crown Publishers calls the book "a strikingly personal and candid account" that President Bush "has spent almost every day writing" since leaving the Oval Office.
The book will include accounts from the Texas Governor's Mansion on the night of the contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One in the hours following the 9/11 attacks; inside the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and in the Oval Office for discussions about the financial crisis and Hurricane Katrina. The former President also writes about his decision to quit drinking, his thoughts on faith, and his relationships with family members.
Decision Points will be priced at $35. A cloth-bound, signed limited edition -1,000 copies total - will sell for $350.
